Taylor County Sheriff's Office and the American Red Cross hosted a blood drive Friday at Kroger on East Broadway. More than 25 people donated, which surpassed the goal for the event.
Sheriff's Deputy William Rice, who spearheaded the drive, said he had set a goal of 15 to 25 donations.
There were prizes from local businesses given away during the event.
Rice said he wanted to plan a blood drive because of the need for blood and to help the sheriff's office build rapport with the community.
